    Hi everyone.

    As the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference is right around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to list all programs that do not pay or owe you money for months.
    Since some of these programs may actually attend the conference, this thread should be a warning for other affiliates to avoid these programs because of their unethical behavior.
    Will be starting here with the usual suspect.

    - Spilleren affiliate: Does not pay
    - Mr.bet partners: Does not pay
    - Condor affiliates: Owe me since May and seems like they won't pay
    - Fantasino affiliates: Owe me since April, and seems like they won't pay
    - Cosmos affiliates: Owe me since May
    - Spintastic affiliates: Does not pay and never respond to emails

    LOL - signed up with these clowns a few months ago, asked 1 question & never heard back from them. Did not promote them so your post says it all, program set-up to obtain free traffic.

    They are running lots of PPC ads on G and if i just happen to click on one of these ads....(by mistake of course)....:p

    They've always paid me, though, a couple of times I've had to chase them up. How much are you owed?

    Not much really but been trying to chase that for 2 months now.

    Not sure what's the story there but they said no funds in wire, and then no funds in skrill, paypal etc.

    Mario seems to be a good guy but don't understand how they expect to work like that.

    dont forget Affpower brands + all their rebrands under GameTech and couple other groups. Easy to spot their rebrands , just check their master license , same TC, etc.

    Also lump in Rock Solid Affiliates with Affpower and the affiliate programme for BCasino.co.uk which amazingly got a UKGC license but the dots all lead back to Tel Aviv and the same individuals behind AffPower.

    Go Wild - haven't paid me since November :eek:
    I haven't chased them, but my payment settings in their back-end are correct, and I have been over the min payment since Feb...

    KK

    {Edit July-11th} I have to apologise - I was wrong.
    I was paid in Feb, but somehow failed to log it on my ledger :oops:
    100% my fault, and so Go Wild have paid me 100% on time, when due.

    Hi @Mikew, how are you?

    Could you please tell me your username or email me directly?
    I'll look into your commission and should there be any pending payments, you'll be paid immediately.

    TO ANYONE ELSE who claims to not have been paid by Condor Affililates, please contact me directly via here (pm) or my work email (brittany(at)condor-affiliates.com).
    We do not tolerate scammy or untrustworthy behaviour as a business. We pay all of our affiliates - so the ball is now in your court everyone.
    a) email me your username + outstanding commission
    b) do it
    c) thanks
    d) post on this thread once you've been sorted out confirming that CONDOR DOES PAY

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you @melcb for trying to assist.

    - Spilleren affiliate is indeed now called balder affiliates. For these guys its just a warning to other affiliates.
    - Mr.bet partners, Still doesn't reply to email or even on Skype although I can see the AM online everyday.
    - Condor affiliates. @Brittany My partner "Camille" contacted Brittany several times by email, Before she was like "you will be paid soon or its getting sorted". Now she is not even reply anymore via email.
    - Fantasino affiliates. My earning in April haven't been credited to be withdrawn. The AM advised me that it will be sorted soon and up until today, no updates and my commissions can not even be seen for the affiliate admin, just if you go through the report.
    - Cosmos affiliates: Used to pay me on time every month, but not since May. I am Currently in contact with Elliot indeed on skype who advised me that its getting sorted asap. That was around June 29th, and up until today, nothing.
    - Spintastic affiliate. No hope, they don't even bother to reply to email. Completely ignoring us.

    @KasinoKing Thank you for posting. We just recently opened an account at Gowild. Now I am sure we won't bother loggin in "ever".

    @Mikew please correct your statement regarding Condor - as your colleague Camille was paid! I personally spoke to her this morning on Skype.
    Kindly stand by your reporting/journalistic skills and update your statement accordingly.
    Speak to Camille. Thank you for your concern.
    But next time, now you and everyone here has my details, please do me a favour and contact me directly should there be any issues of this nature instead of posting things of this nature without any sort basis.

    That's what these forums are FOR. For affiliates to post, especially when Amateur issues like LATE PAYMENTS OCCUR. Really ticks me when some affiliate manager drops the line "please next time keep it on the hush-hush".

    If there's no late payments, there wont be posts simple as that DUH.

    To the topic, by looking at the sponsor list for AAC, I'd say there's like 3 to 5 programs that are non-predatory, and every other has either gone full rogue or has quota/bad terms.

    Updates.
    - Cosmos affiliates: They reached out, explained the reason of the delays and confirmed that missed payments will be sorted in the next paying roll "of July" which we agree and will confirm once its done.

    - Condor affiliates: Payment has been received. My colleague confirmed to have been in touch with Brittany today to sort things out.

    I just want to add as Xecutable said, we wouldn't post here about late or missing payments if that don't happen.
    This part of the business shows respect and trustworthiness.
    I am not posting here to destroy the reputation of programs "All alone I can't and I am not in that business"
    But as part of this community I think its important that fellow webmasters know what they can expect by signing up with some programs.

    I appreciate those that reached out and tried to sort things out.

    Hi to everyone,

    This is Andrew, the Operations Manager from Fantasino.

    Just to clarify all misleading comments that we won't pay: this brand is currently going through an acquisition process, which should be finalized sometime this week or early next week. It took longer than usual due to the amount of paperwork required to conclude it. As soon as the deal is finalized, all pending payments will be done and the new ownership will continue doing business with all current and new affiliates.

    Furthermore, we have always responded immediately in complete honesty to any email asking about this. No one has ever been ignored, or given the sense that we won't pay.

    This decision was taken after a massive win in our casino a few months ago. Since we, casino operators, are the ONLY ones who carry with the actual risk of the business, sometimes these situations drive us to take these decisions. We kindly asked all affiliates with pending payments to give us some time to cancel them (which btw are not all affiliates, just a portion).

    We have always paid on time since our first day of operation, except for this eventuality, and will continue to do so, once this acquisition is completed.

    Anyone with questions about this situation, is free to email me directly at andrew(at)fantasino.com

    Thank you!

    EuroPartners stopped paying me many months ago. When I asked them for a reason, they demanded more exposure and more signups, so I removed all their links.

    Typical. You should take it a step further and convert their review pages into rogue pages. I have no idea why these thieves (Euro Partners) are still in business.
